Man Reportedly Takes Own Life Following Bizarre Series of Events in Rainbow City Friday Night

It appears a man shot himself following a police chase, and a bizarre series of events, that left one person wounded in Rainbow City Friday night.

According to a post on the Rainbow City Police Facebook page a number of personnel from various law enforcement agencies were dispatched to three different locations  just after 9:30pm, and continued to work the incidents until well after midnight.  Rainbow City Mayor Joe Taylor said the authorities were investigating a house fire, a shooting in the Lister Ferry Road area and a shooting following a chase.  Taylor said that a woman was wounded after a man apparently set fire to a home and then began shooting at passing cars; the man, whose name has not yet been released, managed to carjack a vehicle and attempted to flee until police caught sight of the car

The chase ended on Williams Avenue, where the man took his own life.

We’ll have additional information as its released.
